I have a confession to make. I used to adore Diva. It was the only place I'd get my earrings from. I would also get my friends birthday gifts from there because they had really cute necklaces and ear studs but now...I hate it.

I realised how their items are of super low quality and that for such a quality, they're overpriced. A set of earrings cost about $13 average which means one pair costs about $4. That is so expensive for something that gets rusty and spoils easily!

I must admit though, I still get enticed by the splash of colours that permeate from Diva stores. I usually go in to admire the accessories and then proceed to get annoyed by their sales staff who keep pestering me to take their mini baskets. That's their job, I know but if I say no thank you stop shoving the basket in my face!

Overall, they're just not worth it anymore.

Trendy but expensive

DIva sells fashionable accessories which attracts many ladies, however I always thought that the price is high, for the quality. A small simple piece can buy something else of higher value, so I never understand how and why people pump in those money into it.

It is a good place for window shopping with friends to just chill, have fun and look around,and possibly an occasional buy when they have a sale. Some of their sale items are good buys as the price sometimes get pretty low and if you look hard enough, you would probably find something cute.

I am not impressed by their quality. The necklaces/braclets are plated poorly and hence lose colour and 'rust' when exposed to water or even just bits of sweat when we are outside in sunny singapore. Hence, this really cheapens the look of accessories. I have to admit though that they have a wide selection of accessories that are thoughtfully displayed and classified according to themes like 'party rock', 'princess' and colour schemes. But i still do not recommend it, i rather pay a little bit more for a more 'higher quality' accessories as they speak a thousand words to a girls outfit

cute accessories but pricey

I somehow always end up at diva subconsciously doing some window shopping. i guess its the hot pink banner. i like how the accessories are always arranged according to colours or themes. Needless to say, i gravitate towards the pink rack first.

I always find a few things i like and dread looking at the price tag at the back. While you might get a good find occasionally, most of the items are unreasonably priced given the fact that diva isn't exactly a brand powerhouse.

Do check out the discount rack though. Sure to find something cute that wouldn't burn a hole in your pocket.

Don't buy them

Some of their accessories appear as if bits and pieces are cobbled together. Although, some of their designs are pretty cute. I once saw a paper clip necklace.

I remember friendship bracelets were "in" back then. However, instead of bracelets, my friends and I bought necklaces instead. Within a year, the colours faded. One thing I realized about Diva is that their necklaces get tarnished very easily, which is a major issue.

The store definitely pales in comparison to Mini Bits and Helen. In terms of everything-from design to quality to service. Speaking of service, all shop assistants have the tendency to follow customers around. It's very uncomfortable, not to mention, awkward.

But, the bangles are worth a look. Most of them are suitable for different occasions such as casual or party wear.

I used to love Diva accessories when I was 15 or 16, but as I grew older, my tastes changed and recently, I have gone more for quality rather than quantity.

Diva is cute and spunky, pink and girly, and its accessories can be divided into an array of categories. Each piece can transform you into a rock chick, a glamorous diva, a sparkly princess, a Tribeca hippie or a bohemian islander. The best part about Diva is definitely the sales. With pieces going for no more than 9 dollars, girls and women alike are sure to flock to this store for their accessory fix.

However, the quality of Diva's accessories is sub-par. Rings tarnish within a few wears or with immediate contact with water or sweat, and basically all their gold or silver-plated accessories fade in shine after a while as well. I would much rather purchase jewelry from high street labels like Topshop or River Island during their sales rather than from a Diva sale as I know the quality from the former stores will be slightly better than Diva's.

I used to come out of the store with many new accessories in tow. Now, I come out of the store with merely a pair of earrings or two. Something that wouldn't tarnish as much.

Anyone who enters Diva would be wowed by the dazzling display of accessories. The huge range of necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings (you name it) is sorted into various themes for the convenience of shoppers. Personally, I feel that it is a rather smart move because women usually look for matching accessories. Definitely a plus point for the shop.

The accessories are trendy and do not appear to be cheap-looking, if you get what I mean. However, I must say that the items are quite overpriced. Some statement necklaces can go up to SGD40. Nonetheless, it is still a cheaper alternative to shops like Accessorize.

Regarding the quality of accessories...Well, I bought some necklaces from Diva about a couple of years ago and they have since became tarnished. A piece of advice for accessories fans out there: you could apply a layer of nail polish top coat to prevent tarnishing!

Quite pricey, excluding times when they have a sale

Diva has been one of the more famous accessory stores in Singapore. I reckon that if you mention the brand name “Diva” to any females from the ages 15 (maybe even 13 now that the society is modernising so quickly) and above, they will be able to tell you that they have stepped into the store to take a look at the stuff they offer. Purchasing the accessories, however, is another issue.

I remember patronising the store a few years ago, when I was really crazy about accessories. Yes, I admit that they do have pretty little pieces in store. The ones which really get my attention would be those with a “vintage” feel. You know, with all the worn out brass like colour and the chunky pieces of acrylic right smack in the middle. When you really want something, you won’t really care about the price. That was what happened to me back then. But now when I think about it, $25 for a thin bracelet with no more than 3 charms, is really quite expensive. No matter how vintage it looks like. Since then, I started to really watch the prices of the accessories I buy from Diva.

Other than when they have a sale, I don’t think the stuff there are really worth the price attached to it.

Diva is a fashion jewellery chain. Not the place where you look fo diamonds, etc. It is more of costume jewellery where you look for fun fashion wears! Being a total jewellery junkie, I LOVE their stuff! In the shop, Diva classifies their jewellery according to colours! They have turquoise section, red, black, gold, silver, etc.

In terms of price, it is slightlyyy cheaper than places like Aldo and Topshop. However, I would suggest you to look out for their sales! They sell at AMAZING prices – say like 50% discount or sometimes even one for one! I used to buy their stuff at usual prices. But ever since I found out about their sales (Every half a year I think!), I’ve only shop during their sales! :D

Something that I’ve noticed on most of my jewellery from Diva. They tend to rust quite easily though it did not come into contact with water. Perhaps it is due to my sweat or something. But Diva’s jewellery doesn’t last as long as those from Aldo and Topshop!

One last tip, before you purchase anything from Diva, look for cheaper alternatives in places like Forever 21. You may find something similar. You need not necessary splurge on something that rust so easily.

Girls love this shop. Once you enter the shop, you might not want to leave anytime soon, plenty of cute and stylish accessories that would accentuate your beauty. Diva has a wide range of accessories from necklace, beads, earring, hair accessories and more. 

I am not really an accessories fan, but every time I go to Diva, I was just amazed by the amount of items you can get in there. But be informed that some items are not worth buying and the quality is a big no no. The other day, I purchased one necklace for my sister and it costs around $20-$25. After 2 weeks of wearing it, the chain goes rusty and can't be used anymore. Well, at least I would take it as a lesson that cute and pretty items might not be of good qualities. 

The items that I would recommend the ladies to get here is the hair accessories. There are plenty of them, take your time to choose. Usually, the hair bands are pretty and would last long , provided you also take good care of them. Each of them would range around $5-$20.  Also, look out for promotional and discounted items that would make a great deal for you and your girls.
